Archibald McMichael III Customer Complaints

He has been the subject of two customer complaints between 2019 and 2023, one of which was withdrawn, according to his CRD report:

June 2023. “The rep is the subject of, but not a party to, the arbitration. Allegations pertain to an investment in an alternative product, intended to be a small component of a larger diversified portfolio. Unfortunately, the company that issued the investment has since filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. As a result, the client is alleging insufficient due diligence, violation of Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law, breach of contract, common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence.” The customer is seeking $105,000 in damages, and the case is currently pending. The complaint took place while he was registered with Lifemark Securities Corp., and it was regarding common and preferred stock losses. 

Pursuant to FINRA Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities during the time the broker is registered with the firm. Therefore, Lifemark Securities Corp. may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Archibald McMichael III’s customers.
